Purple Velvet Cake Balls Recipe

 This is a cute, fancy and delicious idea...Let’s get a-baking!


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp purple food colouring
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cup cake flour (not self-rising)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tsp distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 250 g cream cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp purple food colouring paste
  •  purple sprinkles  
(Chocolate coating)
  • about a kg of baking chocolate wafers (choose whichever colour you like. I couldn't find purple so I added purple dye to the white wafers)


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • To bake the cake, cream the butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing to incorporate before adding another.
  • Add vanilla and food colouring, mix to incorporate.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together cocoa powder, flour, and salt.
  • Alternate adding the dry mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture until completely incorporated.
  • In a bowl, mix vinegar and baking soda. Once baking soda is dissolved into the vinegar, add to mix and stir to combine.
  • In a 9x13 inch greased and parchment-paper-lined pan, spread the batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes  or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes in pan, then remove from pan and let cool completely.
  • To make the cream cheese icing, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add the sifted icing sugar and vanilla and whip until light. Add food colouring and mix.
  • In a food processor, blitz the cooled cake sponge until you get crumbs of cake. Add that to the icing and mix to combine.
  • Start rolling the mix to 1-inch balls. Layer them in a dish/bowl, with plastic wrap separating them. Let them firm up in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate wafers in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Once melted, transfer to a small, shallow bowl.
  • Drop your cake balls into the chocolate and turn with a fork to coat. Pull out with the fork and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Scrape the back of the fork against the bowl and transfer the coated cake balls onto a parchment-paper-lined plate. You can drop it through purple sprinkles  before cool.Let cool in the fridge for about 5 minutes (the coating should harden)
  • Drop some purple chocolate coating in a parchment triangle, and drizzle over your cooled cake balls.
